Editorial Reviews

"This book fills an enormous gap in social science knowledge about international migration to and from Libya and more broadly about migration from MENA and sub-Saharan Africa to Europe. It makes a singular contribution to Mediterranean studies and to security studies. This book will be widely read by students of international relations." -- Mark J. Miller, Emma Smith Morris Professor, Political Science and International Relations, University of Delaware "Emanuela Paoletti develops a highly original approach to the analysis of power in Italian-Libyan bilateral migration ties. Her close and careful analysis of the dynamics of power relations and international migration makes a major contribution that will be of significant benefit to students of international migration." -- Professor Andrew Geddes, Head of Department of Politics, University of Sheffield, UK
